Selecting the Correct MODS Form

  • The CTDA now offers several customized MODS forms in addition to the standard form.

     

  • The MODS forms are all similar, but some have extra fields which are particular to a certain institution or collection. 

  • For example, for the Basic Image Content Model, the "WWI Object Form" has a "Story" section, prompting a description of an object related to the First World War.

     

  • You can use any form for an object, but keep in mind that some are specially designed for a specific type of object.
